Strains Sense: Lemon Kush

Lemon Kush may be a couple of different strains with distinct genetics. Though, you’re sure to get a musky sweet lemon aroma from each of them. Mostly indica-dominant, this balanced hybrid is the perfect way to relax.

With its high potency and flavorful hits, Lemon Kush has become a favorite to many smokers. 

This rich strain is often recognized for its ultra-tasty smoke that resembles lemonade and citrus fruits. Its musky and earthy undertones pack a pungent punch. 

It’s a very powerful strain that offers effects of both Sativa and Indica, making it the perfect strain for a sense of balance and rejuvenation.

Lemon Kush Experience

Lemon Kush is a balanced 50/50 hybrid with roughly 22-26% THC. 

It was created by crossing two potent popular strains, Afghani Kush and Lemon G. It’s packed with the terpene limonene, which not only affects the citrusy flavor but also promotes upbeat and positive effects. 

This strain is often sought after by medical patients with depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses. 

When puffing on Lemon Kush, expect a fairly balanced mix of a heavy-bodied physical high with a calm, elevated mood. This variety creates a relaxed, easygoing vibe that’s perfect for a slow afternoon.

Traits of Lemon Kush and Lemon Kush Seeds

From the first sniff, this strain leaves a lasting impression on marijuana consumers. 

It provides a heady combo of the signature kush aroma and notes of smooth lemon, which can be pretty irresistible to some cannabis connoisseurs. 

The distinctive aroma is mirrored in this strain’s flavor — citrus and lemon meld with earthy, spicy flavors that lack some of the ammonia or diesel flavors of other lemon-centric marijuana strains.

While this strain has smaller than average buds, cannabis consumers shouldn’t worry — the thick coating of trichomes are potent enough to make up for any size deficiencies. 

That thick frosting makes for some tough weed to break up; you’ll want to keep a grinder close by.

Lemon Kush Effects

When your mood is sour, lighten up with Lemon Kush. Seriously, this is one of the best strains to help you beat the blues and shift into a positive mind frame. 

Because it’s partly a Sativa strain, the buzzy and uplifted cerebral effects are first noticeable about three seconds after a hit. It starts in the forehead and then slowly travels down with soothing, Indica sensations. 

Because this strain is a balanced hybrid, there have been no reports of users feeling couch-locked or sleepy. However, Lemon Kush is also notorious for producing some unwanted effects after frequent use. This includes;

  • Paranoia
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Dry Mouth
  • Dry Eyes

Did you know that the highest reported THC content within Lemon Kush reached a whopping 38%? 

While most Lemon Kush varieties will have somewhere between 22-26%, it’s still very strong. Novice marijuana consumers should be aware when consuming large amounts.

Medical Benefits of Lemon Kush

Heady, lemon aroma, and flavors aside, medical marijuana patients cherish this strain for the relief it offers from a number of ailments and conditions.

  • Medical consumers often find that this strain eases headaches and knocks stress out of the park
  • Those with depression and anxiety tend to like this mellow hybrid, though you may experience a little paranoia if you consume too much
  • Both of the most common Lemon Kush varieties have a fairly high THC content. The Master Kush variety has even reached levels over 20%. Though well-balanced, this strain can be quite potent — novice marijuana consumers should be aware when consuming in large amounts
